In May 2010, a kind, energetic Sacramento woman was struck by a large pickup truck. While the impact itself lasted only a few seconds, those seconds forever altered her life. She began the long process of recuperation which in her case sadly involved two spinal surgeries. Fortunately, the hard work ethic instilled in her by her parents as a child helped her in her recovery. Year after year since May 2010, she has doggedly performed physical therapy which has resulted in a partial physical recovery.
Like many who find themselves in a similar situation, her life became consumed with a multitude of medical appointments. Adding to the stress of this hard working Sacramento woman striving to recover was significant financial setbacks due to the inability to return to her prior employment. She had been self-employed, performing cleaning services prior to the collision. This was a field of employment she was no longer physically able to perform. It was at this time she sought the help of a personal injury lawyer in Sacramento to handle her claim in order for her to focus her attention on her physical recovery. She chose the Edward A Smith Law Offices to represent her claim. Her choice paid off and she was able to resolve her claim for nearly a million dollars during the summer of 2014.
